Learning Gun Safety with Daisy BB Gun

Are you looking for cool gift ideas for the tween on your list? Now that our kids are getting a little older, we no longer scour the sales ads for little plastic toys. The things on their wish list are a little more grown up. This year, we decided it was a good time to get our daughter her first BB gun. We thought about waiting till Christmas since this would be the perfect gift for our target loving, competitive family but last weekend the weather warmed up just a bit, the sun came out and we decided it was the right time for an early Christmas present and a few reminders about gun safety.

But before we could have the shooting fun in the back woods, we needed to buy the Daisy BB gun and all the accessories. When you buy your BB gun, make sure you purchase a pair of safety goggles, some BBs and of course something fun to shoot!

One of the great things about a BB gun is that they provide young shooters with a perfect opportunity to learn gun safety. Daisy has been educating young shooters since 1948 and continues to educate through its partnership with leading conservation and youth training organizations such as National Wild Turkey’s JAKES Take Aim, 4-H National Shooting Sports, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Royal Rangers, Youth Shooting Sports Alliance, Civilian Marksmanship, NRA, JROTC units, scouting, fish and game as well as church and private camps.

Daisy educates roughly one million of America’s youth a year and promotes safety for kids when using guns.

Our kids are growing up around guns and have been learning the 4 rules of gun safety for years. But now that my daughter has her first BB gun, it was time for a review course. We know that guns are not what kill people; it’s people that misuse guns that cause dangerous situations. I love giving my kids the opportunity to learn how to be safe around guns by letting them use a BB Gun under our supervision.

#1 Tip for Kids and Guns: We teach our kids to always STOP, RUN and TELL if they see a gun when we are not with them.

Time to Shoot the Daisy

My husband set up some targets for us to shoot and spent some time teaching Natalie how to load the BB gun. In just a few minutes we were ready to have some fun shooting at the target!

Sure, it’s always fun to shoot at paper targets and see who can get the closest to the bull’s eye; but while I was at Academy, I found these really cool targets that ooze colored slime when you shoot them! Now these things were fun to shoot!

Shooting the BB gun is just one more adventure we can share together – another opportunity to build memories and share experiences. Anyone want to guess which one of us got the closest to the target more than the others? Sure, Daddy’s a pretty good shot….but…. Natalie and I are pretty good ourselves!
